To calculate the area of an Ellipse, you just need to drop two numbers into the following formula:

A = π x ((w ÷ 2) x (h ÷ 2))

Where:

A = Area

π = Pi (3.14)

w = the width

h = the height

## Example

You’ve been asked to calculate the area of an Ellipse, you measure the **width** and find it is **12m** and the **height** is **8m**.

Find the area using the formula

**A = π x ((w ÷ 2) x (h ÷ 2))**

**A = π x ((12m ÷ 2) x (8m ÷ 2))**

**A = π x ((6m) x (4m))**

**A = π x (6m x 4m)**

**A = π x 24m**

**A = 75.4m ^{2}**

The answer is 75m^{2}. Seventy five point four meters squared
